Happy Monday! If you are visiting from Pretty Practical Home, Welcome! If you are just a fan, Hello and remember when I participated in the My Home Style Blog Hop? Well, Stephanie over at Casa Watkins has done it again, except she is calling it My Home Style: Christmas Tree Edition. Last week I participated in a couple of Christmas Home Tour blog hops, here and here, and I stated that my Christmas decor style is “Vintage-Eclectic-Prep meets Glam.” I know a mouthful…but as much as I want everything to be cohesive…my tree honestly has a vintage eclectic feel to it.
I sold my “traditional” Christmas tree last year…for some silly reason, I did not think we would be in this rental come this year…I know silly me. Anyways, I purchased a new Slim Tree, which fits better in the space. At first the mister was not very thrilled about it, but it grew on him and he started to appreciate its slim-ness. lol. He really liked how it does not take up floor space and I quote, he said…”It makes more sense for us to have a slim tree than a regular tree and I like it!”
I have a box full of vintage ornaments that I purchased at the thrift store two-years ago. I do not know if I could ever let them go…they are worth so much and I paid so little. They also add a FUN element to my space and my kids really like them. Most of my vintage ornaments are wooden, while some are plastic-like with a faux velvet feel to it. I really do not know how to explain it.
My tree is wrapped with black mesh ribbon, blush pink sheer ribbon from my wedding, and red holiday beads. My gold and red bulb ornaments are also vintage and worn…YES, YES, YES…but you can find red and gold ornaments pretty much anywhere and DIY them to give them a vintage look. I also stuck a few clear bulb ornaments in the inside of my tree, to take up space….haha! Well, that is a wrap for me…Don’t forget to stop by Elizabeth Joan Design’s site to learn more about their Christmas tree.
